Portrait of a Woman from Chincheros
This is Martha, a 50- year-old Quechua woman from Chincheros with 5 children. She wears the hat of a matriarch in the village. Each village in the Sacred Valley has their own traditional hat styles that signifies what village you are from, if you are single, married, engaged or of important status. Your hat is the most important accessory you can wear and it tells a story about who you are in the Quechua culture.
